Traffic delays north of Auckland
Drivers heading north from Auckland this weekend are warned to expect delays as major roadworks get underway on State Highway 16.
The highway will be closed at Huapai in north-west Auckland on Sunday and Monday nights, the NZ Transport Agency said. Traffic will be diverted onto side roads.
Agency regional journey manager Jacqui Hori-Hoult said the detour was 3.6km long. The highway will be closed on both nights from 7pm to 6am.
